An 83-year-old man was charged with attempted murder after a Miami road rage shooting on Friday.

Mario Perez-Tano allegedly shot at a man who pulled into traffic from a gas station.

Witnesses told police they saw a bus let Miguel Garcia, who was driving a white sedan, into traffic, but that a man driving a red Volkswagen tried to cut him off.

Police identified that driver as Perez-Tano. The two men allegedly had a verbal altercation and then Perez-Tano fired two shots at Garcia.

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

Both cars sped away, but they couldn’t get very far because the Miami River bridge was up.

“What’s going through my mind is that I’m about to witness a murder,” witness Henry Laurido told CBS Miami. “I have kids. I told them to duck because you never know.”

Laurido dialed 911.

Garcia’s car was hit several times. He was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

“First I thought it was fireworks, but I looked up and saw a guy pointing a gun,” said Garcia’s daughter, 13-year-old Ashlyn. “My dad told me and my sister to get down and we both dropped to the floor. It was super scary.”
